ISLAMABAD JULY 20 (TNS): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Fawad Chaudhry remarked that the documents submitted as evidence by government in the Panama case holds no legal value.
“The documents should be used to make toys for children. The government is trying its best to hide the crimes of Nawaz Sharif, he claimed, adding “the court will punish the criminal for sure.”
We are waiting for the verdict just like others, he added.
After the Thursday’s hearing concluded, Chaudhry remarked that the case is going to reach its logical conclusion. Tomorrow our judges will meet for 15 minutes each after which the final decision will be made, he said, adding the PM will go home and his children will be imprisoned. The father will be disqualified for 10 years, while his children will be sentenced to jail for 14 years. The inquiry and investigation of the case has been completed just the verdict remains, he added.
Moreover, he said that if the case is sent to the accountability court then there will be only two options; arrest of PM and his family or them seeking bail. “Do you expect the sitting PM to go to courts daily to secure bail for himself?” he remarked.
He further said that Supreme Court also hinted towards the fake documents submitted by Maryam and Hussain Nawaz. It is possible that they can be jailed for seven years over this.
Another PTI leader Naeemul Haque has called upon the National Assembly to “get ready to elect a new Prime Minister”.
Senior Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Sherry Rehman, speaking to journalists outside the court, said these are old documents and a part of delaying tactics being employed by the government.
She criticized the prime minister’s visit to Sialkot yesterday, saying “amid echoes of unprovoked Indian firing, the premier played politics”. Instead of visiting the affected people, the prime minister did not even mention anything about the ongoing Indian aggression across the Line of Control and Working Boundary.
PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira said “they’ve been trying to spin things since the beginning. Today, they’ve brought to the fore another letter. It seems the court will dismiss it as it did the previous letters.”
Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq, addressing the media, said he wants a decision in favor of the people. “The court is unsatisfied with the arguments being presented by the government,” he claimed.
The JI chief said he hopes corruption will be eliminated from the country following the Supreme Court’s judgment in the case.
